, without the tarp on it. law enforcement authorities and others are combing over it, taking pictures of it. that is an active crime scene still. >> his family released a statement that says, our family applaud the entire law enforcement community for a job well done and trusts the justice system will now do its job. none of this will bring our beloved martin back or reverse the injuries these men inflicted on our family. we continue to pray for healing and comfort on the long road that lies ahead for every victim and their loved one. this is him indeed an ambulance last night. now he's under heavy guard where some of the people he allegedly harmed have also been receiving care. we want to go to elizabeth cohen. elizabeth, there are new details about his injuries since i last spoke with you. what do you know? >> reporter: don, these are very details from my colleagues. also what we've learned from susan candiotti. what we've learned is he's had wounds to his throat and also, this is very, very important, it's intubated and sedated. somewhat that means is he has a tube going down his throat
's under sedation. he's intubated. he is in serious condition at beth israel hospital. a law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation told our susan candiotti earlier that he had been shot in the neck. it is not clear if that gunshot wound came in the thursday night to friday morning shootout he was involved in with his brother or during the friday evening takedown when he was finally captured, but those are some of the reasons that maybe they could not level charges against him, formal charges against him tonight. that could come in the coming days, don. >> so talk about the bombs, brian. you've learned something about where they came from? >>. >> reporter: that's right. our susan candiotti has spoken with a law enforcement official familiar with the investigation. he says the thinking now is the bomb components were bought by the suspects locally, somewhere here in the boston area. that, of course, is going to be the subject of an intense part of this investigation, where they got the bomb components, how they put together the bombs allegedly and just kind of tracing al
a few officials, one with law enforcement, couple with intelligence, and what we do know is that, of course, this is good news, right? they actually thwarted this plot. we know that it targeted a train route between the united states and canada. one law enforcement official pointed me towards a line that runs between new york city and toronto. it runs actually from buffalo, new york. i'm told that the plan was to detonate explosives in canada. and derail -- and derail the train. and my law enforcement source said there had been some reports that they wanted to wage a spectacular attack, blow up a bridge. he said no. he said what they were doing was to target the train on the tressels, and actually what they wanted to do was derail the train and cause maximum injury to the people on it. >> so two quick follow-ups with you, gloria. first, whether we look at u.s. response here of what happened in boston, canada, an example of it working well, right? coordinated investigation, caught the plot early, and they have been watching it for over a year, haddize izeyes on the si, right? >>
and therefore the younger brother is going to be able to relay that to law enforcement or are they going to continue these sort of dark patches where we have questions that will never be answered. >> last about the latest incident. two men in canada that apparently wanted to derail a train from canada probably headed to the u.s. they are identified as having support from al qaeda in iran. >> right. >> a lot of threads here. do they make sense to you? >> they don't make sense to me. that doesn't mean they aren't true. but as we've learned this week. as we've learned in the past, we should always be cautious about the early reports. one thing the canadian mounted police said there is no state sponsor. even if there is an al qaeda link it's not iran supporting attack. and it makes no sense what iran is doing. we're in negotiations. they're about to have a presidential campaign. this is not the way iran tens to operate. of course al qaeda and injury. she vows to dance again and run in the boston marathon. this is what she had to say to cnn's anderson cooper. >> i landed and was -- sort of cl
will release that videotape in a court of law. they've described it in extensive detail. that's going to be powerful, powerful evidence in a potential trial. tom, thanks very much. let's recap quickly the surviving suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev, now facing federal charges, among them use gd and conspiring to 0 use a weapon of mass destruction rulgting in death. let's bring in our senior legal analyst jeffrey toobin. jeffrey, what happens next? >> what happens next is that the case will be presented to a grand jury. prosecutors will begin presenting evidence, leading to an indictment. i think the process is going to slow down a great deal. remember, this crime was only a week ago. the government is going to have to assemble a lot of scientific evidence trying to tie material that could be connected to the defendant, to the bomb itself. this is complicated stuff. i think it's going to be months in the grand jury until a final indictment is ready to be presented probably. and then at that point the case will be presented to a trial judge, and there will be motions and then a trial. >> he no
shells but law enforcement officials say it wasn't enough for explosions of the size that occurred in boston. an 8-year-old bombing victim martin richard was buried today after a private funeral mass. his parents issued a statement saying, and i'll read it to you, we laid our son martin to rest and he is now at peace. just minutes ago the sisters of the bombing suspects issued a statement through their attorneys and it reads as follows. i'll read it to you. our heart goes out to the victims of last week's bombing. it saddened us to see so many innocent people hurt after such a calloused act. as a family the statement adds we are absolutely devastated by the sense of loss and sorrow that has caused. we don't have any answers but look forward to a thorough investigation and hope to learn more. we ask the media to respect our privacy during this difficult time. the surviving boston bombing suspect dzhokhar tsarnaev is improving in a local hospital. that comes a day after a federal judge found him to be alert, mentally competent, and lucid at a bedside hearing. cnn's brooke baldwin is
hill later today, when law enforcement officials brief lawmakers. john? >> all right, barbara starr, thanks so much. barbara starr in washington. i want to bring back fran townsend, cnn analyst, former homeland security adviser to president george w. bush. and fran, i want to get your take here. where do you think the investigation stands right now? we've had these initial criminal complaints given dzhokhar tsarnaev. we've seen sort of the case laid out just a little bit. but how about the investigation itself? what are the next steps? >> well, first of all, we know from investigators that they're cooperating with the russians. i talked to sources, federal sources, and the cooperation between russian authorities and the fbi is quite good. both want to understand what they might have missed, what they should have seen, and what they should have made of it as this case is unfolding. you know, there are questions about the older brother tamerlan's travels to russia, what he did and who he met with. those are the sorts of questions that are following up. in the meantime, here in the uni
